Angelina Jolie has starred in a wide range of films throughout her long and esteemed acting career.

And on Saturday, the 45-year-old Hollywood star told Weekend Sunrise about her new film, Those Who Wish Me Dead, and the 'challenges' of playing her latest character.

In the film, Angelina plays Hannah, a smokejumper - a wildland firefighter - suffering from PTSD, who finds herself tangled up in a deadly situation when she helps a young boy after he witnessed his father's murder.

The actress explained to the Australian breakfast show: 'What was weird is, I am American, but I realised how I don't often play American.'

20 unknown movies by famous directors

  20 unknown movies by famous directors Can you name every single movie your favourite director has ever made? As big a fan of Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, or Francis Ford Coppola as you may be, there’s a good chance you aren’t familiar with all of their work. But then again, maybe you’re just that big of a film buff. To test your movie knowledge, see how many of these lesser-known or overlooked movies by famous directors you know. A perfect 20 out of 20 makes you a regular Roger Ebert.

Then, there are the cameos . These are athletes who aren’t huge players in the story, but their presence makes any sports fan laugh. It’s hilarious to see your favorite athlete completely out of place. Unless you are with the missus, and she keeps asking you what’s so funny. Okay, so Gretzky himself doesn’t make a live cameo in the movie , but he is the cornerstone of one of the best sports video game scenes of all-time. EA Sports NHL ’94 was one of the most fun sports games ever. And despite the fact players could no longer fight in the game, Vince Vaughn still planned on making the Great One’s

It's possible these athlete movie cameos aren't THE best of all time is a bit of a stretch. Athletes tend to make terrible actors. Sure, there are a few who’ve managed to become legitimately successful in Hollywood—like Jason Lee, or Terry Crews—but they are the exceptions. For the most part, if you get paid to play sports but you also want to be in movies , you’re going to have to settle for athlete movie cameos .

'So doing this very regular, American woman suddenly felt more challenging than even a crazy Maleficent.'

Some of her most memorable action films include Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Salt, The Tourist and Alexander.

She continued: 'I think people can relate to her more, can relate to feeling broken, messed up, imperfect,' referring her role as Hannah.

'She's maybe closer to me than some of the other characters,' the Hollywood star added of her character.

Earlier in the week, Angelina spoke to Channel Ten's The Sunday Project about working alongside her 14-year-old Australian co-star, Finn Little, and filming in New Mexico.

Sports Commission apologises to athletes

  Sports Commission apologises to athletes Following a damning report into Australian gymnastics, the Australian Sports Commission has apologised to athletes who had negative experiences at the AIS. An independent review into Australian gymnastics, released on Monday by the Australian Human Rights Commission, found the sport's culture enabled physical, sexual and emotional abuse - predominantly against girls and young women.

Either way, cameos in feature films by athletes are always fun and interesting. Seeing the jocks in different elements with tiny little actors by their sides is a great visual contradiction. It wasn’t too long ago that some of these same athletes were tormenting these tiny acting geeks in high school. Below is a list of some of the best athlete cameos of all time. These short scenes made these athletes and the films they starred in, wait for it, legendary! These are the top 10 best cameos by athletes in movies !

Some cameos in movies are so under the radar that even sports fans watching the movie may not realize who they really are. As youngsters dreaming of becoming pro athletes , it’s fair to say that these 20 never dreamed of making it big in the movie industry. They had lofty goals and aspirations, but those were limited to their sport of choice. Not every athlete dreams of becoming the next Arnold Schwarzenegger.

'Neither one of us live there. Finn's family or my family,' she explained, adding that they all played with airsoft rifles during their time off.

'We were there together and were able to air soft on the weekends, or swim and hang,' Angelina said.

'I've been missing hanging out with his mum,' she added, referring to Finn's mother.

The Tomb Raider actress shares Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12, with her ex Brad Pitt, 57.

Angelina and Brad have been in the midst of a custody battle since their separation in 2016.
